The Revolutionary War (1775-83), also known as the American Revolution, arose from growing tensions between residents of Great Britain’s 13 North American colonies and the colonial government, which represented the British crown. By the fall of 1781, Greene’s American forces had managed to force Cornwallis and his men to withdraw to Virginia’s Yorktown peninsula, near where the York River empties into Chesapeake Bay.

Hessians were German mercenary units hired by the British to support their armies, both in America and in their European war . Between 20 & 30 percent of the British forces in America during the Revolutionary War were Hessian.

Hessians were German mercenary units hired by the British to support their armies, both in America and in their European war against France. The ‘British’ troops Washington defeated in Trenton NJ after crossing the Delaware were actually Hessians. There were many claims of excessive brutality by Hessians.

The American War of Independence had officially begun

The American War of Independence had officially begun. The militia harassed the British all the way from Concord to Boston, and then surrounded the city. Then, in October, British General John Burgoyne invaded upstate New York via Canada, winning several initial victories. Later, however, his army became bogged down thanks in part to efforts of American militia units at Oriskany, Fort Stanwix, and Bennington. The War of Independence is forever ingrained within our American identity, and provides all Americans a sense of who we are, or, at the very least, who we should be.

Foreword by John Gardner. Presents parts of the diaries, letters and regimental records from 34 individual sources from five of the six German states which rented their armies to Great Britain. The reader experiences the war in chronological order, from the Hessian departure from Germany, through the harrowing Atlantic crossing, through as many as eight years of military campaigns, and back to Germany. Told with the immediacy of first-hand experience.
